HISTORY 

The Charter of Millsaps College, which was granted Feb- 
ruary 21, 1890, reads as follows: 

AN ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State 
of Mississippi, That John J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, 
Thomas J, Newell and Rufus M, Standifer, of the North Mis- 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE

the Mississippi Conference of said church, and Marion M. 
Evans, Luther Sexton, William L. Nugent and Reuben W. 
Millsaps, of Jackson, lay members of said church, within the 
bounds of said Mississippi Conference, and Bishop Charles B. 
Galloway, be and they are hereby constituted a body corporate 
and politic by and under the name and style of Millsaps Col- 
lege, and by that name they and their successors may sue and 
be sued, plead and be impleaded, contract and be contracted 
with, and have a common seal and break the same at pleasure, 
and may accept donations of real and personal property for 
the benefit of the College hereafter to be established by them, 
and contributions of money or negotiable securities of every 
kind in aid of the endowment of such College; and may con- 
fer degrees and give certificates of scholarship and make by- 
laws for the government of said College and its affairs, as well 
as for their government, and do and perform all other acts 
for the benefit of said institution and the promotion of its wel- 
fare that are not repugnant to the Constitution and laws of 
this State and of the United States, subject, however, to the 
approval of the said Conferences. 

Sec. 2. As soon as convenient after the passage of this 
Act, the persons named in the first section thereof shall meet 
in the City of Jackson, in this State, and organize by accept- 
ance of the charter and the election of Bishop Charles B. Gal- 
loway as their permanent President, and of such other persons 
as they may determine to fill the offices of Vice-President, 
Secretary and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, pow- 
ers and terms of office of all said officers, except as to the 
terms of their said President, who shall hold office during life 
or good behavior, or so long as he may be physically able to 
discharge his duties. 

They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical trus- 
tees from each of said Conferences one-half, who shall be 
trustees of said College for three years and until their succes- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 25 

Bors are elected, and the other half not so elected shall re- 
main in office for the term of six years and until their succes- 
sors are chosen, as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death, 
resignation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent 
physical disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said 
Trustees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, 
powers and term of office. 

Sec. 3. That the said Trustees shall, before the meeting 
of said Conference next before the expiration of the term of 
office of any of their number, notify the secretary of said Con- 
ferences thereof and the vacancy shall be filled by said Con- 
ferences in such a way and at such time as they may deter- 
mine, and the persons so selected shall succeed to the office, 
place, jurisdiction and powers of the Trustees whose terms of 
office have expired. And the said Corporation and the Col- 
lege established by it shall be subject to the visitorial powers 
of said Conferences at all times, and the said College, its 
property and effects shall be the property of said Church un- 
der the special patronage of said Conferences. 

Sec. 4. That the said Trustees, when organized as here- 
inbefore directed, shall be known by the corporate name set 
out in the first section of this Act, and all money, promissory 
notes and evidence of debt heretofore collected under the di- 
rection of said Conference for said College shall be turned 
over to and receipted for by them in their said corporate name, 
and the payee of such notes and evidences of debt shall en- 
dorse and assign the same to the corporation herein provided 
for, which shall thereafter be vested with the full legal title 
thereto, and authorized to sue for and collect the same. 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any 
appropriate town, city or other place in this State at which to 
establish this College, and to purchase grounds not to exceed 
one hundred acres as a building site and campus therefor, and 
erect thereon such buildings, dormitories and halls as they 
may think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of 
their organization and the best interest of said institution, and 
they may invite propositions from any city or town or individ- 
ual in the State for such grounds, and may accept donations 
or grants of land for the site of said institution. 



26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Sec. 5. Ttiat the land or grounds not to exceed one hun- 
dred acres used by the corporation as a site and a campus for 
said College, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon 
erected, and the endowment fund contributed to said College 
«hall be exempt from all State, County and Municipal taxa- 
tion so long as the said College shall be kept open and main- 
tained for the purpose contemplated by this Act, and no 
longer. 

Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as prac- 
ticable, be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point con- 
sistent with the efficient operation of said College, and to this 
end reports shall be made to the said Conferences from year 
to year, and their advice in that behalf taken, and every rea- 
sonable effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education 
within reach and ability of the poorer classes of the State. 

Sec. 7. That this Act take effect and be in force from 
and after its passage. 

The College has its origin in the general policy of the 
Methodist Church to maintain its institutions under its own 
-control for higher learning in the Arts and Sciences. 

At the Annual Session of the Mississippi Conference In 
the City of Vicksburg, on December 7, in the year 1888, the 
following resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the 
Conference: 

"Resolved, 1. That a college for males under 
the auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, ought to be established at some cen- 
tral and accessible point in the State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and 
three preachers be appointed to confer with a like 
committee to be appointed by the North Mississippi 
Conference to formulate plans and to receive offers 
of donations of land, buildings or money for that 
purpose, and report to the next session of this Con- 
ference." 

In accordance with this action, the President of the Con- 
ference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove appointed, the following com- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 

mittee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Wat- 
kins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent and Dr. Luther 
Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference 
met at Starkville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presid- 
ing. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action, 
taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following tran- 
script from the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives 
the response made by that body: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education 
of boys and young men should be established in the 
State of Mississippi under the auspices of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, South. 

"That a committee of three laymen and three 
ministers be appointed to confer with a like com- 
mittee already appointed by the Mississippi Confer- 
ence." 

The following committee was accordingly appointed: 
Rev. J. J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. 
G. D. Shands, Capt. D. L. Sweatman and Mr. J. B. Streater. 

To the action of these Conferences we may trace the di- 
rect origin of the College. 

The joint commissions constituted by the action sum- 
marized above met in the City of Jackson in January, 18 8 9. 
The Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the chair. In stating 
the purpose of the meeting he made a stirring appeal in be- 
half of the proposition to establish a Methodist College in Mis- 
sissippi for the education of young men. In response to this 
earnest appeal, Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the com- 
mission, proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, 
provided the Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal 
to this amount for said purpose. This proposition was en- 
thusiastically approved, and after a plan of procedure was 
adopted, Bishop Charles B. Galloway was invited to conduct 
a campaign in the interest of the proposed endowment fund. 

Under the direction of this distinguished leader, the most 
gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The re- 



28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

port submitted to the Conferences by the committee in Decem- 
ber, 1889, refers to the movement in the following language: 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous ne- 
cessitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the 
State, could not be continuously carried on, but even 
the partial canvass made, embracing not more than 
.one-fifth of our territory, resulted in the most grati- 
fying and encouraging success. The interest awak- 
ened in the enterprise has extended beyond the limits 
of our own Church, and is felt by every denomina- 
tion of Christians, and by every section of the State. 
It is safe to say that no effort of Methodism has ever 
kindled such enthusiasm in our State or evoked such 
liberal offerings to the Lord. The fact has been 
demonstrated that the Church is profoundly con- 
vinced that the College is an absolute necessity." 
The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the 
proposed institution that numerous towns in the 
State have entered into earnest competition to se- 
cure the location of the college within the limits of 
their respective borders, offering from $10,000 to 
$36,000, and from twenty to eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1889, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member of 
the Mississippi Conference, was appointed a special agent to 
co-operate with Bishop Galloway in all matters pertaining to 
the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of 
raising the sum designated in the original proposition pro- 
gressed, and $25,000 had been collected, Major Millsaps in 
the year 1890 paid $25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 1892, the Rev. J. W. Chambers was ap- 
pointed agent for the College, and on December 30, 1893, he 
reported that the full amount had been collected to meet the 
terms of Major Millsaps' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 
was immediately paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Com- 
mittee and the following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return 
our most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29 

for his second gift of $25,000, this day turned over 
to us. For his princely liberality, and unfailing in- 
terest in the great enterprise so happily and suc- 
cessfully inaugurated, the Church and State owe him 
a large debt of gratitude." 

The Conference having provided for a Board of Trustees, 
the joint commission dissolved in January, 1890. This Board 
to which was referred the matter of organizing the College, 
was composed of the following: 

BISHOP CHARLES B. GALLOWAY, President 

REV. W. C. BLACK, D.D. REV. S. M. THAMES 

REV. T. L. MELLEN REV. T. J. NEWELL 

REV. A. F. WATKINS REV. C. G. ANDREWS, D.D. 

REV. R. M. STANDIFER HON. G. D. SHANDS 

MAJ. R. W. MILLSAPS CAPT. D. L. SWEATMAN 

COL. W. L. NUGENT MR. J. B. STREATER 

DR. LUTHER SEXTON MR. JOHN TRICE 

HON. M. M. EVANS REV. J. J. WHEAT, D.D. 

After the Board organized under the charter, the question 
of locating the College was considered with great care. The 
Board met repeatedly to consider offers made by different 
towns, and finally on May 20, 1891, while in session in Wi- 
nona, Mississippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the 
capital of the State. The citizens of Jackson contributed 
$21,000 for grounds and buildings, and to this sum Major 
Millsaps added $15,000. Plans for a commodious main build- 
ing were immediately procured, grounds were purchased, and 
in a comparatively short time buildings were in process of 
erection. 

The College opened its doors for the reception of students 
in 1892 with Rev. W. B. Murrah as President, and three pro- 
fessors in the College. A Preparatory School was opened at 
the same time with one Master. From time to time its facili- 
ties have been enlarged and additional departments created, 
until it now has, in addition to its President, twenty-two pro- 
fessors in fourteen departments. 



30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The Presidents of the College have been W. B. Murrah, 
D.D., LL.D., later Bishop Murrah (1892-1910), D. C. Hull, 
M.A., (1910-1912), A. F. Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923), and 
D. M. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923 ). 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in 
Jackson led to the establishment in 189 6 of a Law School. 
Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Mis- 
sissippi, and for more than fourteen years a professor of law 
in that institution, took active control of the new school. In 
1918 it was discontinued. 

In 1911 the Academy was formally separated from the 
College. It was made a distinct institution with the official 
title of the Millsaps Academy. In 19 22 it was discontinued. 

The facilities of the College were enlarged in 189 5-189 6 
by the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster Sci- 
ence Hall. In 1901 Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, built 
an observatory for the College, in memory of his father, Mr. 
Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James, and furn- 
ished it with a fine telescope. Millsaps College can thus of- 
fer unusual advantages in astronomy. In 1902, to supply 
the increasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall 
facilities. Major Millsaps gave the College the property for- 
merly known as Jackson College. This enabled the College 
to fill the demands made on it at that time. In addition to 
this gift Major Millsaps gave fifty acres of land immediately 
adjourning our campus. Ample provision is thus made for 
the future expansion of the college. 

In 1906 the General Education Board offered to donate 
from the funds provided by John D. Rockefeller for Higher 
Education $25,000, provided an additional sum of $75,000.00 
should be collected from other sources, for the permanent en- 
dowment of the College. Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North 
Mississippi Conference, was made financial agent of the Col- 
lege to collect this sum. In 1910, $32,279.10 had been col- 
lected for this purpose. Mr. I. C. Enochs, a generous citizen 
of Jackson, gave an additional $5,000. Major Millsaps, with 
characteristic generosity, contributed the remaining $37,- 
720.90. Thus the endowment of the College was increased 
by $100,000. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 

In 1913 Major Millsaps gave to the College property on 
Capitol Street, Jackson, valued at $150,000. This is the 
largest single gift to the College. 

The dormitory of the Preparatory School was destroyed 
by fire in 1913, but was promptly rebuilt and made more val- 
uable by alterations which also improved greatly the appear- 
ance of the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the 
main building in 1914. But within a few months the old 
structure had been replaced by a far more commodious and 
imposing administration building. , 

At the decease of Major R. W. Millsaps in 1916, it was 
found that he had left for the endowment of the College, life 
insurance to the amount of $88,000. This final benefaction 
fittingly closed the long list of his gifts to the College. 

During the Christian Education Campaign of 19 21 Mr. W. 
S. F. Tatum, a generous layman of Hattiesburg, donated 
$100,000 to the College for the establishment of the Depart- 
ment of Religious Education. The Board of Trustees accept- 
ed the gift, giving the department the name of the generous 
donor. Later, in 1923 Mr. Tatum, realizing the growing im- 
portance of this field in the church college, added $25,000 to 
the sum at first given by him. By these gifts he created the 
first separately endowed department in the college. The de- 
partment was organized at the opening of the session of 1921- 
'22, with Professor C. A. Bowen in charge. Provision was 
made in the deed of gifts for the employment of an Associate 
Professor, and Millsaps College now has two professors in this 
department. The work of this department has grown in 
scope and effectiveness until it is new recognized as doing a 
leading work in the Methodist Church in this field. It is to 
be hoped that others will see the opportunity for promoting 
instruction in particular subjects by endowing other depart- 
ments. The Science Departments, the History Department, 
the Department of Education, and the Carnegie-Millsaps Li- 
brary are, because of their needs, promising fields for a fruit- 
ful investment in Christian Education. 

In 1926 the number of women students had increased to 
such an extent that it became necessary to provide housing 



32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

accommodations on the College campus, and the Sullivan 
House which had been removed in order to make room for 
the new Carnegie-Millsaps Library, was fitted up and equip- 
ped for this purpose. During the session of 1928-29, a sec- 
ond building, a new apartment house on West street was 
leased and furnished as a home for young women. It im- 
mediately became apparent, however, that this provision is 
inadequate and will have to be enlarged. Plans are now on 
foot by which it is expected that adequate provisions will be 
made for all young women now in the College and for those 
who may enter the Junior or Senior Class. It will not be 
possible to admit young women not residents of Jackson to 
the Freshman or Sophomore Class. 

Since the foundation of the old library had so given away 
as to make the building unsafe, the Carnegie Library Board 
agreed in 1923 to rebuild the Library on a new site, and to 
provide a larger one more nearly adequate to the needs of the 
College, which had grown greatly since the original Library 
was built. So a new Library costing $60,000.00 became 
available in 1925-1926. 

In 1926 and again in 1927 the Conferences took action 
approving and endorsing the purpose of the College to make 
a special appeal for the enlargement and improvement of the 
physical equipment. In the spring of 1928 this appeal was 
begun and some $268,000 in subscriptions was secured. This 
amount included a number of gifts of considerable sums in- 
cluding $50,000 from B. B. Jones who had previously given 
$20,000 to the endowment, $15,000 from W. M. Buie, whose 
previous gifts have amounted to $28,300; and $15,000 from 
I. C. Enochs family. At the next Annual Conference, Rev. V. 
G, Clifford was appointed as financial commissioner who de- 
voted his time to the raising of funds for the completion of 
the buildings needed. As a result of the subscriptions al- 
ready made, a magnificent science building costing about 
$180,000 has been erected. 

In compliance with a request from the student body the 
Board of Trustees, at their annual meeting in June, 1932, 
named the new science building Sullivan-Harrell Hall. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 33 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the 
Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. An 
impartial committee of the Association made exhaustive in- 
quiry into the financial resources of the institution, its 
courses, the training of its instructors, and the character of 
its work, and unanimously recommended it for membership. 
This inquiry extended over a year, and no conditions what- 
ever were imposed for the election of the College, since it had 
been of the first rank for some years. Its degrees are rec- 
ognized by all institutions of learning as among the best in 
the land. 

The College is also a member of the Association of Amer- 
ican Colleges, and of the American Association of Collegiate 
Registrars. 

The following statement of the resources of the College, 
while not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, gives some 
idea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a 
guaranty of its perpetuity: 

Productive endowment, including reve- 
nue producing property $ 888,453.48 

Unproductive endowment (land) 100,000.00 

Buildings 5 40,162.85 

Grounds 227,071.18 

Books, Equipment, etc 82,587.15 

TOTAL ?1, 838, 274. 66 

One of the purposes which the College keeps constantly 
in view is indicated by the following section of the charter: 

"The cost of education shall, as far as practica- 
ble, be reduced to the lowest point consistent with 
the efficient operation of said College, and every rea- 
sonable effort shall be made to bring collegiate edu- 
cation within the reach of the poorer classes of the 
State." 

With a productive endowment of $888,45 3.48, and build- 
ings and grounds worth $767,234.03, it rests on a foundation 
which assures its perpetuity. It has the support of a great 
religious denomination, yet it is not sectarian in its policy. 



34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

It numbers among its patrons representatives of all the Chris- 
tian churches.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 39 

GENERAL INFORMATION 

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. Mill- 
saps, whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the 
institution possible. The College is the property of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, South, and was organized by the con- 
current action of the Mississippi and North Mississippi Con- 
ferences. It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among 
its patrons members of all the Christian denominations. 

LOCATION 

Jackson, the capital of the state, and the seat of the 
College, is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Thirty 
passenger trains arrive and depart daily. The College is lo- 
cated in the northern part of the city on a commanding ele- 
vation, with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of 
one hundred or more acres. A healthier spot it would be 
difficult to find within the limits of the State. Jackson is a 
city of 48,000 inhabitants, with handsome churches and pub- 
lic buildings, and is noted for the refinement and intelligence 
of its people. Its literary, social and religious advantages are 
superior. 

THE JAMES OBSERVATORY 

Millsaps College is prepared to offer excellent advantages 
in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan A. James, of 
Yazoo City, Mississippi, built an observatory for the College 
in memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, 
Mr. Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a 
fine telescope. The class of 1916 donated a fine photographic 
lens to the observatory. A two inch prismatic transit by 
Gaertner was added to the equipment in 193 0. 

CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LIBRARY 

Near the close of the session of 190 5-190 6, Mr. Andrew 
Carnegie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the 
trustees would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major 



40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Millsaps added to his many contributions by giving the full 
amount of the endowment. 

The foundations of this handsome building unfortunate- 
ly gave way so that it became necessary to rebuild the struc- 
ture, and the Carnegie Corporation generously appropriated 
$50,000.00 for this purpose. The books are catalogued fully 
by the A. L. A. system and are in charge of Mrs. M. B. Clark 
and Miss Adele Mounger, trained and experienced librarians. 

Prom time to time additions have been made from the 
endowment funds and from the Library fees. 

In addition to the books thus obtained, the library has 
been so fortunate as to secure most of the well selected li- 
braries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall, John W. Burruss and 
Rev. W. G. Millsaps, the entire library of Colonel W. L. Nu- 
gent, besides many volumes from the libraries of ex-Chancel- 
lor Edward Mayes, Dr. A. F. Watkins, and Major R. W. Mill- 
saps. Dr. J. M. Burton, late professor of Romance Languages, 
who died in France in the service of his country on October 
5, 1918, generously left to the College his entire Romance 
library. This has been appropriately labeled and shelved, and 
constitutes a valuable addition to the books on Romance Lan- 
guages. The Martha A. Turner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. 
Bingham, of Carrollton, Mississippi, is used for the purchase 
of books in English literature. Through the generosity of 
Hon. W. S. F. Tatum a fine collection of books has been built 
up for the use of the Department of Religion. 

Mrs. Charles B. Galloway made a notable addition to our 
collection of valuable books by giving to the College the fine 
theological library of the lamented Bishop Charles B. Gallo- 
way. 

In 19 31 the Carnegie Corporation included the Millsaps 
College Library in the list of college libraries to which spe- 
cial donations were made for the purchase of books. A sum 
of $10,000 has been allotted to the library to be paid in five 
annual installments. This fund has already greatly strength- 
ened the library, especially by making it possible to obtain 
many works and sets of books that it would otherwise have 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE . 41 

been difficult or impossible to obtain at this time. In the last 
four and one-half years, through January, 1936, more than 
4,300 books have been added to the library from this source. 

The students also have access to the State Library and 
the Jackson Public Library, which are unusually complete in 
many departments. 

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION 

Students will be required to be present at morning wor- 
ship in the College Chapel. In this daily service the Faculty 
and students come together to hear the reading of the Bible 
and to engage in singing and prayer. Students must attend 
religious worship at least once on Sunday in one of the 
churches of Jackson. 

THE YOUNG MS:N'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

One of the most potent factors in the College for develop- 
ing the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three- 
fold nature of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spirit- 
ual. It is a well known fact that a student who develops 
himself intellectually, but neglects his spiritual nature, is in 
no sense a complete man. Unless one becomes a well-round- 
ed man, he is not fit to fight the battles of life. 

In this connection the association was organized shortly 
after the College was founded. It has done as much to mould 
character and to hold up a high standard of ideals before the 
student as any other department in connection with the Col- 
lege. It has been dominated by the double purpose of lead- 
ing men to accept Christ and to form such associations as will 
guard them against the temptations of college life. The As- 
sociation has done much to strengthen the spiritual life and 
influence of the College, to promote Christian character and 
fellowship and progressive Christian work. It trains its mem- 
bers for Christian service and leads them to devote their lives 
to the cause of Christ where they can accomplish the most for 
the extension of the Kingdom of God. In order to accomplish 



42 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

this purpose the Association holds weekly meetings on Wed- 
nesday evenings. These services are usually conducted by 
some of the students, but occasionally by some member of the 
Faculty, or by some prominent minister or layman. 

Realizing the importance of a young man's choosing his 
life work while in college, a series of addresses on "Life 
Work" has been arranged and prominent men of each profes- 
sion are invited to address the Association from time to time 
on their respective professions. 

An annual revival is held some time in the year, lasting 
more than a week, which results in leading young men to 
Christ each year. During the current year a spiritual life con- 
ference conducted by Dr. R. E. Smith, contributed very much 
to the religious life of the students. 

The Association sends yearly a delegation to the South- 
ern Students' Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina. 
Since the ten days of the Convention are assiduously devoted 
to discussing Association work and problems, the delegates 
always return enthusiastic and zealous for doing Christian 
service. 

The work of the Association is carried on by the students; 
each man has his part to do according to the plan of the organ- 
ization. The President, elected by the members, appoints 
chairmen of nine committees, each composed of three or more 
men. It is the duty of the Publicity Committee to advertise 
all meetings, and secure good attendance. The Membership 
Committee meets all new students as they arrive, and gives 
them any information desired concerning College, boarding 
facilities, etc. Afterward this committee calls on each stu- 
dent and urges him to become a member of the Association. 
The Reception Committee has charge of College Night, and 
any other entertainment that the Association may choose to 
give during the year. The object of College Night is to make 
the students acquainted with one another and to interest the 
new man in the different phases of College life. The Em- 
ployment Committee assists deserving students in getting em- 
ployment for their spare time. The City Mission Committee 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 43 

has charge of work in different parts of the city. The Devo- 
tional Committee provides leaders, and the Music Committee, 
whose Chairman is the treasurer of the Association, collects 
the annual dues and raises funds sufficient for meeting cur- 
rent expenses. 

But most important are the Bible Study and Mission 
Study Committees. Bible study groups are formed at the dor- 
mitories and at the boarding houses. The students engage 
in daily Bible reading and meet for one hour each week, for 
discussion. The Mission Study Committee arranges courses 
in biographies of missionaries in various mission fields and 
secures leaders for the various classes. A student Volunteer 
Band is organized and is active in preparation for mission 
work. Delegates are sent each year to the Volunteer Con- 
vention, and the College is now represented in the foreign 
field by a number of efficient missionaries. 

The Y. M. C. A. is back of every phase of College life, 
and it is expected that every student will identify himself with 
the organization. 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Young Women's Christian Association plays the same 
part in the lives of the young women of the College as is 
played by the Y. M. C. A, in the lives of the men. It exerts 
a profound influence for good on the whole College. 

Religious services are held by the Y. W. C. A. each week, 
a period being set apart in the College programme of exer- 
cises for that purpose. The Association sends each year a 
delegate to Blue Ridge. The girls of the College have in the 
Y. W. C. A. all the advantages offered by that organization 
in the best colleges for women. 

The Freshman Commission constitutes those who are in 
training for position as future officers of the Association. 

DEBATES 

Representatives of the college engage in intercollegiate 
debate w^ith teams from the other colleges of the state and 



44 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

also other institutions. In recent years there have been de- 
bates with Emory University, Birmingham-Southern College, 
Vanderbilt University, Centenary College, and others. In 
1925-'26 Millsaps debate teams won every one of the six de- 
bates engaged in, and since that time have won a majority 
of their contests. 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS 

There are two literary publications which have an excel- 
lent standing among the student publications of the South, 
viz., the Purple and White, the campus weekly, and the Col- 
lege annual, the Bobashela. 

HONORARY FRATERNITIES 

Student leadership in college activities is signalized and 
rewarded by election to various honorary fraternities. Liter- 
ary ability among the men of the college leads to member- 
ship in the Kit-Kat Chapter of the national literary frater- 
nity, Sigma Upsilon. Similar ability among the co-eds leads 
to membership in Chi Delta Phi, a national literary honor so- 
ciety for women. Excellence in scholarship is given recogni- 
tion by election to Eta Sigma. Pi Kappa Delta recognizes 
the leaders in oratory and debate at Millsaps. Student lead- 
ership, of whatever kind, is recognized by membership in 
Omicron Delta Kappa, an intercollegiate leadership fraternity. 
Membership in this organization is regarded as a great honor. 
Excellence in dramatics at Millsaps, as manifested by partici- 
pation in the dramas presented by the Millsaps Players, leads 
to association with Alpha Psi Omega, the youngest honorary 
fraternity on the campus and one of the livest. A pre-medical 
fraternity, recently organized, also functions for those whose 
interests are along that line of activity. Such honors as 
those mentioned above are much sought after in our institu- 
tion, and cause students to attain a high degree of excellence 
in their chosen field of student activity, 

MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS 

For a number of years there have been two excellent glee 
clubs, the men's glee club under the direction of Dr. A. P. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 

Hamilton, and the women's glee club under the direction of 
Miss Magnolia Simpson. Both glee clubs are now under 
the direction of Mr. Alvin J. King. An excellent band has 
been organized, the student body raising some $1,200.00 for 
instruments and equipment, and it has made rapid progress. 
The students of the Fine Arts Department have organized the 
Beethoven Club, and presented some excellent programs, pri- 
vately and publicly. 

Several other voluntary organizations, such as the Science 
Club, and the Classical Club, give expressions to collateral 
scholarly interests outside the regular curriculum. 

ATHLETICS 

Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercolle- 
giate Athletic Association, and the Dixie Conference, and takes 
part in all intercollegiate games. Games and sports of all 
kinds are under the special direction of the General Athletic 
Association, a student organization, whose object is to pro- 
mote this class of physical exercise. The faculty exercises a 
general advisory control, endeavoring to foresee and avert 
dangerous tendencies or excess in physical exercises while giv- 
ing to the students as far as possible entire liberty of man- 
agement; a strict limit is placed upon the character of the 
intercollegiate games and the number played away from the 
College. 

The Athletic Director has supervision of all intercolle- 
giate teams and conducts mass games and interclass leagues 
that enlist a large percentage of the students in some form 
of active participation in athletics. For those who report 
regularly two hours a week for exercise, under the instruc- 
tion of the Athletic Director, a scholastic credit of two se- 
mester hours is granted. 

BOARDING FACILITIES 

Students of Millsaps College, as a rule arrange for their 
living in one of two ways. 

1. There are seven small cottages, in which students can 
room at reduced cost. These cottages are provided with the 



46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

same furniture provided for dormitory rooms. The cottages 
are admirably situated on the eastern side of the campus. The 
rooms are sufficiently large to accommodate two students 
each. The room rental per student in the cottages is $20.00 
per year in advance or $12.50 per half year in advance. 
Furniture, lights, fuel, and water are furnished except to 
families using apartments. Students wishing to engage a 
room in one of the cottages should write Mr. V. B. Hathorn, 
at the college. 

2. In the dormitories the expense will be approximately 
$18.00 to $21.00 per month including room, light, steam heat, 
board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. The dining 
room is conducted on the cooperative plan. During 193 3-34 
the cost amounted to approximately $15.00 per month. Stu- 
dents who room in the cottages take their meals at the Col- 
lege dormitory. There are Christian homes where students 
may get rooms without board. In such cases the students 
may get meals at the college dormitory or at private homes. 

3. Since the formation of the Millsaps System and the 
recent development of a number of excellent State Junior col- 
leges in Mississippi, the number of women students in the 
junior and senior classes of Millsaps has increased to such an 
extent that the College has provided living quarters for wom- 
en. These are comfortably furnished and in each is provided 
reception rooms and apartment for a house mother. All non 
resident women students will be required to reside in the 
home provided by the College and to conform to the regula- 
tions of the dean of women. Room rent in these homes is 
$63.00 per year or $35.00 per half year and board $15.00 per 
month. 

THE DORMITORIES 

Founder's Hall is a three story structure, beautifully lo- 
cated on the east campus facing State Street. At the South 
end of the campus and overlooking the city with the beautiful 
dome of the New Capitol in the foreground are Burton Hall 
and Galloway Hall. These handsome buildings with their 
columned porticoes are connected by a colonnade. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 

The great dining room is unusually fine and is separated 
from the large kitchens by a commodious serving room. A 
feature which will be greatly appreciated by the students la 
a large common room where the boys may gather for a social 
hour. 

Millsaps now is able to offer dormitories equal in all their 
appointments to the best to be found in any Institution in this 
section. Each student should bring with him four sheets for 
a single bed, blankets, or quilts, a pillow with cases, and six 
towels. 

No change of rooms will be allowed except by permission 
of the President. 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to 
be assured of a room. A deposit of $5.00 must accompany a 
request for a reservation. Students entering College for the 
first time are entitled to reserve a room upon payment of the 
application fee of $15.00. 

A home for young women in Galloway Hall under the 
supervision of the Matron and the Dean of Women has been 
provided and newly furnished, and adequate provision will 
be made to accommodate all out of town young women who 
are accepted. 

MEMORIAL COTTAGES 

The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Missis- 
sippi Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of North Mis- 
sissippi Conference, have built two cottages for the accommo- 
dation of students. These homes are named respectively, the 
John A. Ellis, and J. H. Brooks Cottage. 

MATRICULATION 

The various departments are under the direction of pro- 
fessors who are responsible for the systems and methods pur- 
sued. 

The session begins on the second Wednesday of Septem- 
ber and continues with recess of about ten days at Christmas, 



48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

until the first Tuesday in June. The first two days of the 
session are given to registration and all students, both old and 
new, are required during that time to place their names upon 
the books of the College and the rolls of their respective 
classes. Lecture courses begin Friday, and absences will be 
recorded against any student not present from the opening 
lecture of each course. 

EXAMINATIONS 

The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some departments but they are aux- 
iliary to the written examinations, which in conjunction with 
the class standing, as determined by the daily work of the 
student, are the main tests of the student's proficiency. 

At the end of the four years' course a comprehensive 
examination is given in the student's major field. 

REPORTS 

Reports are sent at the close of each nine weeks to the 
parent or guardian of each student. These reports give the 
number of excused and unexcused absences from lectures, and 
indicate, as nearly as practicable, the nature of the progress 
made by him in his work at the College. 

REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS 

Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar of the Col- 
lege at his office in the main building promptly at 9:00 o'clock 
on the opening day, September 16th. In each instance a 
certificate of good moral character, signed by the proper of- 
ficial of the institution attended during the previous session, 
or by some persons of known standing, must be sent to the 
Registrar at least two weeks before the opening of the session. 
Each candidate who satisfies these requirements and those 
for admission by certificate or examination will be furnished 
with a card containing the courses offered. From these he 
must take the required courses and those electives which he 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

proposes to pursue during the session. The card must then 
be carried to the Bursar, who will, after the College fees have 
been paid to him, sign the card. Registration is incomplete 
unless the registration card is signed by both the Registrar 
and the Bursar. On payment of these fees the applicant will 
be admitted to classes. 

DELAYED REGISTRATION 

Students are not permitted to delay their registration 
through carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any student, 
new or old, who fails to present himself for registration dur- 
ing the first two days of the session will be admitted to regis- 
tration only upon the consent of the President, and will be 
required to pay a special fee of $3.00. 

RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE AND GRADES 

The Academic year begins on the morning of the second 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas re- 
cess of about ten days. 

Attendance is required for each student throughout the 
session, with the exception of the days above indicated, un- 
less he has received permission to be temporarily absent, or 
to withdraw before its close. Leave of absence is granted by 
the Faculty or President for sufficient reasons, and must in 
every case be obtained in advance. While in residence each 
student is required to attend regularly all lectures and other 
prescribed exercises and all examinations in the courses which 
he pursues, (unless excused for cause), and in every way to 
conform to the regulations of the College. 

Absence from the College is permitted only upon the 
leave of the Dean, obtained in every case in advance. But 
leave of absence for purposes of accompanying the athletic 
teams, debating teams and all other recognized clubs will 
not be granted except to officers and members of the organi- 
zations. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organiza- 
tions is provided for by Faculty regulations. 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Absence from any class is not excused except for sickness 
or like providential cause. But absences, whether excused or 
not, from one-fourth or more of the recitation period in any 
term will result in proportionate decrease of credits allowed. 
If a student is absent from a class more than one-fourth of 
the time devoted to that course he loses one-half credit in 
that course. The deficiency is made up by adding the loss 
in credit to the 128 hours for graduation. If a student is 
absent from one-half of the time devoted to a course then 
all credit in that course is lost and the entire course must be 
repeated. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except 
for sickness on day of examination, attested by a physician's 
certificate, or other cause which the Faculty by special order 
may approve. An unexcused absence or presentation of an 
unpledged paper is counted as a total failure in the examina- 
tion in which it occurs. A student whose absence from ex- 
amination is excused is admitted to a special examination 
ordered by the Faculty. 

CHANGE OF CLASSES 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by the consent of the Faculty. 

The grade of the student in any class, either for a semes- 
ter or for the session is determined by the combined class 
standing and the result of examination. The daily average 
counts two-thirds, and the examination one-third of the grade 
for the semester. If the combined grade is below D the stu- 
dent is required to repeat the course, except in courses where 
the grades for the two semesters may be averaged. 

Those reported delinquent in two or more subjects at any 
faculty meeting are required to report to Coaching School 
from 7:30 to 9:30 in the evening of the following two weeks. 

Class standing in any course is determined by the regu- 
larity of attendance of the student upon lectures and labora- 
tory or other similar exercises where included in the course 
in question and by the faithful performance of his work as 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

indicated by the answers when questioned, by written exer- 
cises, note books, the faithful performance of laboratory or 
other similar work, etc. Students are regarded by the fac- 
ulty as under the law of honor in matters affecting class 
standing or in examinations. The grade for passing in any 
course is D. For quality requirements see page 67. 

WITHDRAWALS 

Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the writ- 
ten consent of the Faculty or President. 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the Faculty for ha- 
bitual delinquency in class, habitual idleness or any other 
fault which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose 
for which he should have come to College. 

The College reserves the right to cancel the registration 
of any student at any time. In such a case, the prorata por- 
tion of board, room rent, and tuition will be returned. 

AH) TO METHODIST MINISTERS 

Library Extension Service. — One of the most effective 
ways in which we are serving the ministers of Mississippi is 
in placing the books of our library subject to their call. We 
not only do this free of charge but we pay postage one way on 
any book that may be ordered from us. Books may be kept

The rules of the College require from every student de- 
corous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains a 
member of the College, whether he be within its precincts or 
not. 

They require from the student regular and diligent ap- 
plication to his studies, and regular attendance upon chapel. 

Drinking, gambling, and dissoluteness are strictly for- 
bidden, and any student found guilty of them is punished by 
suspension or expulsion. 

Firearms. 

The keeping of firearms by the students Is strictly for- 
bidden.

Students who are delinquent in their studies are forbid- 
den to visit the town, or other places away from the College 
at night, without permission from the President. 

Delinquency. 

Reports are made each two weeks of all those failing 
during the preceding two weeks in each subject. The names 
of those delinquent are posted and notice is sent to the parent 
or guardian. 

Those students who do not pass in as many as three sub- 
jects during a semester, except Freshmen, who must pass two 
subjects and make a grade of E in a third for the first se- 
mester, shall be dismissed from College. 

Demerit System.

lations of the college regulations, such as hazing and oth- 
er offences. 

2. When a student "has received an aggregate of thirty-five 
demerits he is called before the Faculty and warned. A 
notice of the same will be sent to his parent or guardian. 

3. When the aggregate of demerits reaches sixty-five, he re- 
ceives a second warning, and a second notice is sent to his 
parent or guardian. 

4. When the aggregate of demerits reaches one hundred, he 
is dismissed from the College.

The Academic Schools comprise the Departments of Lan- 
guages, Mathematics, Science, History, Social Science, Litera- 
ture, Philosophy, Education, and Religion. In the courses of 
these departments is comprised the work of the College with 
the degree of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. 

B.A. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Arts Course offers special instruction in 
the departments of Ancient and Modern Languages. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 67 



B.S. Degree. 



The Bachelor of Science Course offers special work in 
Chemistry, Biology and Physics. 

p A full outline of the required and the elective studies of- 

fered for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of 
Science is given in the pages following this announcement. 

One hundred and twenty-eight semester hours are re- 
quired for graduation both for the B.A. and B.S. degrees. 
Specific courses are prescribed in the Freshman and the Soph- 
omore classes, including alternative courses offered in ancient 
and modern languages. All the courses in the Senior and 
almost all in the Junior class are elective. 

The usual course is 32 semester hours for each year. 
Not fewer than 24 semester hours nor more than 38 semester 
hours may be taken in a year, unless by express permission of 
the President and Faculty. 

THE GRADING SYSTEM 

All marks are changed from a percentage to a six-point 
letter scale as follows: "A", "B", "C", "D", "E", and "F". 
"A" to represent superior work, largely of a creative nature 
and in addition to the regularly prescribed work of the class. 
"B" to represent above the average achievement in the 
regularly prescribed work. "C" to represent the average 
achievement of the class in the regularly prescribed work. "D" 
to represent the level of achievement in the regularly pre- 
scribed work of the class below the average in the same re- 
lationship as the grade of "B" is above the average. "E" 
represents a condition and may be changed to a "D" if the 
grade in the other semester of the course is "C" or above. 
"F" represents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of 
the class. All marks of "D" and above are passing marks 
and "F" represents failure. 

A student who makes a grade of "D" in a subject will 
be advanced in that subject, but a certain number of quality 
points is requisite for advancement from one class to the next 



68 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

higher class. The student must have nine quality points to be 
classed as a Sophomore, 3 6 to be classed as a Junior, 72 to be 
classed as a Senior, and 120 for graduation. The completion 
of any college course with a grade of "C" for one semester 
shall entitle a student to one quality point for each semester 
hour, and the completion of a course with a grade of "B" for 
the semester shall entitle a student to two quality points for 
each semester hour, and the completion of a course with the 
grade of "A" for the semester shall entitle a student to three 
quality points per semester hour. 

HONORS 

A student who has earned 240 quality points during his 
course shall be graduated vfith "honors"; one who has earned 
348 quality points and is rated excellent on comprehensive 
examination, shall be graduated with "high honors." 

To be eligible for "honors" or "high honors" a student 
must have passed at least sixty semester hours in Millsaps 
College. Sixty per cent of the quality points on which "hon- 
ors" or "high honors" are given must be earned at Millsaps. 
These regulations do not apply to those who transfer back as 
much as eighteen semester hours for their degree.

I. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON 

PROFESSOR KEY 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HUDDLESTON * 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR SIMPSON 

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected 
languages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in 
the following ways: 

Constant drill in the processes of correlation, comparison, 
discrimination and classification of the phenomena of lan- 
guage is required, both in the study of inflection and syntax 
and in translation. This drill affords a most rigorous exer- 
cise in correct scientific method and produces habits and re- 
flexes of accuracy, efficiency and system. 

A first hand acquaintance with the language and modes 
of expression of the ancients and with the evolution of literary 
forms lays open a field of knowledge that is essential to a full 
understanding of modern life and literature. 

Intimate contact with the very words which express the 
best ideals and aspirations of those great spirits whose influ- 
ence has been most abiding and formative in our world should 
shape the character to fine and worthy purposes. The "ul- 
timate objectives" are not lost sight of.

The Department of Chemistry is now well provided for in 
the Sullivan-Harrell Hall, a new and thoroughly modern sci- 
ence hall, which was recently built as a gift from citizens of 
Jackson and Hinds County. There are two lecture rooms 
supplied with tablet-arm chairs fixed in elevated rows, im- 
proved lecture desks with Alberene stone tops and removable 
down-draft hoods, sliding blackboards with separate control 
for lighting, and other conveniences. There are four large 
laboratories, one for general chemistry provided with five 
double desks eighteen feet long to accommodate 140 students 
in three sections and (piping roughed-in for two more desks 
as needed), one for organic and qualitative work provided 
with five double desks eighteen feet long to accommodate sev- 
enty individuals (provision being made for expansion), one 
for quantitative analysis equipped for fourteen students, (ex- 
pansion provided for), and one for industrial chemistry. There 
are three smaller laboratories for physical chemistry, nitrogen 
determinations, and research, respectively, besides six small 
laboratory rooms for individual and specialized work. All 
desks have Alberene tops and sinks, with lead trough inclined 
in one direction the entire length, and are supplied with an 
adequate number of outlets for water, gas, compressed air, 
and 110-volt electric current. 

All laboratory hoods are of the high velocity and open- 
type made of Transite board on Alberene shelf supported on 
steel pipe frame, and range from four to eight feet in length. 
Each hood is provided with outlets for water, gas, compressed 
air, and 30-ampere electric current, with separate control for 
lighting fixture attached to ceiling of hood. 

The work in this department includes one year of Chem- 
istry required of candidates for B.S. degree, besides other 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 85 

courses open to all students who have completed chemistry 
21, 22. 

The subjects are taught by recitations and lectures and 
work which each student must perform in the laboratory. 
The laboratories are kept well equipped with apparatus neces- 
sary to the correct appreciation of the science. Each student 
has his own desk and apparatus, and is closely supervised, so 
that he may not only gain a true idea of the substance under 
inspection but also train his hands to be careful to the smallest 
detail, and the eye observant of the slightest phenomenon, 
and habits of neatness, skill and economy. Each student will 
be expected to keep accurate notes. In all courses attention 
will be given to chemical calculations, and the use of refer- 
ence books and periodicals will be encouraged. 

11, 12. Inorganic Chemistry. (Not offered 19 3 6-' 3 7. See 
course 21, 22). 

21. Inorganic Chemistry. 

The first semester will be devoted to a careful study of 
fundamental principles and laws, the occurrence, prop- 
erties, preparation and uses of the non-metallic elements 
and some of their compounds, and to chemical calcula- 
tions. Special attention will be given to valence and the 
ionization theory. 

22. The work of the second semester will include a study of 
metals with special reference to commercial uses and to 
qualitative analysis, and an elementary course in Or- 
ganic Chemistry. 

This course is designed to give the student a thorough 
working knowledge of general chemistry, and is a pre- 
scribed study of the Sophomore year for the B.S. degree. 
It is a prerequisite to either of the other courses in chem- 
istry, and is open to Freshmen who are registered as 
pre-medical or pre-engineering students, and to A.B. stu- 
dents who elect chemistry. 

A laboratory course is given in connection with the lec- 
tures, and each student is assigned the preparation of a 



56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

number of elements and compounds, and required to

DOROTHY STRAHAN 

WINNIE BUCKLES 

The department of education welcomes capable students 
who contemplate teaching. Those who do not intend to teach 
are advised not to attempt the technical courses in education. 

Students should consult a member of the department be- 
fore enrolling in any course in education. An attempt is made 
to furnish definite guidance to prospective teachers concern- 
ing the courses in education and the academic courses that 
will best fit them for their work. 

Courses in education are not open to Freshmen. 

The courses offered in this department are approved by 
the State Department of Education. 

The state program specifies that the training of the high 
school teacher shall contain the following: 1. A specified 
academic core curriculum; 2. A specified professional core 
curriculum; 3. A specified number of hours training in the 
subject or subjects taught. Two high school subjects are 
specified as the maximum number for which one can be 
trained to teach. 

The core curriculum specifies that all high school teach- 
ers have a minimum of twelve semester hours in English, nine 
semester hours in social studies, six semester hours in science

able to make the required preparation in this subject, a pre- 
paratory course (Course A) is offered. This course, if taken 
under the supervision of the College and not used as an en- 
trance unit, may be used as Junior or Senior elective. When 
thus used it counts three hours toward graduation. All classes

In the courses in History two things will he kept in view. 
Students will be required to acquaint themselves with the sig- 
nificant facts in the development of the nations studied, and 
to learn why these facts are considered significant. As far as 
possible, the causal connection between historical events will 
be indicated, and emphasis will be laid on the idea that his- 
tory is a record of the continuous development of the human 
race, whose growing self-consciousness manifests itself in the 
progressive organization of its moral and intellectual ideals 
into laws and customs. 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its racial composition, its 
religious and social institutions, its economic condition, and 
the organization of its government. 

11. History of Europe 378-1776. 

In this course an attempt will be made to show that the 
problems and ideal of modern nations grow out of their 
history. This will be done as a preparation for the study 
of the governmental institutions of our own and other 
countries, and as the basis for a correct understanding of 
the questions now engaging civilized nations. Required 
in Freshman year for B.S. students. Required in either 
Freshman or Sophomore year for B.A. students.

PROFESSOR LIN 

The courses in Philosophy are designed to give an intelli- 
gent view of the constitution of the mind, and to indicate the 
conditions of all valid thought. Only what is fundamental 
will be considered. 

In Logic both deductive and inductive logic will be given, 
but neither course will receive credit for graduation unless it 
is supplemented by the other course in this subject. In the 
History of Philosophy a comprehensive view will be given of 
the results attained by the greatest thinkers who have at- 
tempted to frame a consistent theory of the material and the 
spiritual world. One course in pre-christian ethics will be 
given, and one in the ethics of recent times. As in Logic, 
both courses must be taken in order to receive credit for either 
looking to graduation. It is recommended that Logic be tak- 
en before either Ethics or the History of Philosophy is at- 
tempted.

11, 12. Physical Training for Men. The requirements in 
physical work are designed to cover the whole school year at 
the rate of two hours a week for each freshman. Although 
this work is compulsory, considerable freedom in selection is 
offered. The sole aim is to create a healthy desire to engage 
in some form of recreation, under proper supervision, so as to 
benefit the student morally, mentally, and physically. This 
exercise takes form of competitive games in order to arouse 
the proper interest, develop team work, teach initiative, 
strengthen the morale, teach true sportsmanship, and create a 
life-long interest in some form of sport which will benefit the 
student in after life. An idea is also gained as to the natural 
ability of each man and quite frequently students discover 
that they are really better in athletics than they thought they 
were and are encouraged to try for the varsity teams.

Xin. THE DEPARTMENT OF REMGION 

The Tatum Foundation 

PROFESSOR BULLOCK 

INSTRUCTOR GILMORE 

CAXTON DOGGETT 

The courses in this department are offered for the con- 
tribution they make to intelligent Christian living, and to 
a genuine cultural education, rather than for any special pro- 
fessional interest such as the ministry or other Christian life- 
service. These special interests are not neglected, but the 
courses seek primarily to meet the urgent needs of the Church 
for an intelligent and effective leadership among its lay mem- 
bers. It is hoped that many students will avail themselves 
of these courses. 

Some Millsaps students, under the direction of the De- 
partment of Religion and the Board of Christian Education, 
serve in Short Term Training Courses in the Mississippi con- 
ferences, during the summers. This department gladly co- 
operates in helping prepare students for such important serv- 
ice to the Church. 

Religion 11 and 12, providing an introduction to both 
the Old and New Testaments, and some insight into the mean- 
ing of the Christian religion, is required of all freshmen ex- 
cept pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-engineering students, 
who are required to take it during the sophomore year. 

All courses in this department are one semester in length, 
and carry three hours credit. Other than Religion 11 and 12, 
both of which must be taken, any single semester course may 
be taken. Prerequisites for any given course may be waived 
under special circumstances, but only upon the consent of the 
professor. 

Majors in this department may emphasize either Biblical 
literature or religious education, but in either case the whole 
plan should be carefully worked out in cooperation with the 
professor of religion. It is the growing sentiment among the 
leaders of the Church that students preparing for the ministry 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 115 

should not major in religion but rather in English or the so- 
cial sciences. It is, however, suggested that every minister- 
ial student should take some electives in religion, thereby- 
orientating himself for seminary work. 

11. Introductory Bible. 

An introduction to the necessary backgrounds for intel- 
ligent study and appreciation of the Bible, and some in- 
sight into the meaning of the Christian religion. Re- 
quired of all freshmen except pre-medical, pre-dental, 
pre-engineering students, who are expected to take it in 
the sophomore year. This course or its equivalent is 
required for graduation, and is prerequisite to further 
study in this department.

graduation.

GENERAL STATE^IENT 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 19 36 will 
open on June 3 and will continue for eleven weeks. 

The Summer School is planned especially for college stu- 
dents and for teachers who desire further professional work 
or regular college work. Teachers may secure renewal of li- 
cense by attendance for nine weeks. Entrance units and tran- 
scripts will be required of all new students. 

In opening its doors to the teachers of the State, Mill- 
saps College feels that it is serving a long felt need in that 
some provision should be made at the Capital of the State for 
teachers to spend a few weeks during their vacation and at the 
same time take such work as they may find in the list of 
courses. 

All the advantages of the other summer schools will be 
afforded in the way of renewal and extension of license pro- 
vided by the State Department of Education. 

College graduates who lack the required number of hours 
in Education will find, here, an opportunity to make up some 
of those hours. Students with two years of college training 
may, with six hours in Education, be granted a temporary 
State License without examination by the State Board of Ex- 
aminers. 

The amount of work that a student may take will be lim- 
ited to two subjects with a total credit of twelve semester 
hours, or to four semester courses of three hours each. 



142 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

There will be a series of lectures by special lecturers from 
time to time. Announcement will be made beforehand. 

The tuition fee will be $35.00 and a matriculation fee of 
$5.00 will be charged. Board will be $25.00 or $26.00 per 
month, or at the rates of $8.00 per week. For a period of less 
than a week the rate will be $1.50 per day. Science fee, 
$10.00. Library fee $3.00. Science breakage fee, $2.00 for 
each course, unused portion returned. Those who expect to 
live on the campus will bring with them a pillow, bed-linen, 
towels, and toilet articles. The dormitories and dining hall 
will be open on the evening of June 2. Fees and board pay- 
able strictly in advance. 

Those expecting to enter the Summer School should make 
reservation of room by sending to the Bursar a deposit of 
$5.00.
